We are honored to ring the Nasdaq Bell and will be celebrating virtually with all of our stakeholders our many accomplishments throughout 2020. With the commencement of operations at Perry County, we now have the ability to generate stable cash flows for our investors, a reliable supply of high-quality carbon for our customers, and over 170 steady and reliable jobs for the community.
